LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- This Labor Day was the sixth annual backpack give away during Hanna Fest at the Hanna Community Center.
Families received free school supplies and a very fun afternoon, hosted by the Hanna Center.
Over 300 backpacks were filled with items including notebooks, pencils and erasers for Pre-k through 12th graders.
Attendees also experienced a beer garden, food, games and a cake walk.
Executive Director of Hanna Center Heather Maddox says the event originally started as a fundraiser, but it's now evolved into a community celebration.
She expressed her appreciation to the community for all the support they've given.
"Every bit of support we get helps a lot whether it be volunteers or monetary, just people talking about us and supporting us in the community it means a lot to us," Maddox said.
Maddox said the event usually draws around 150 people each year.
